Following Geoff’s Journey – Brainstrust Fundraiser 2021 Update

  • Following Geoff’s Journey – Brainstrust Fundraiser 2021 Update

    At TBSC we value helping the community and have teamed up with the Geoff Worsley fundraiser for Brainstrust.

    Brainstrust provides the education, care, and support throughout the treatment process. They also offer cutting-edge research and create a sense of community to those with a brain tumour diagnosis. Brainstrust certainly stands out with their charitable work, contributing to an array of areas including:

    • Focusing on the well-being of those diagnosed with brain tumours
    • Accessible on a national level
    • Addressing isolation issues and creating communities

    Geoff’s fundraising involves training and running marathons throughout the year to bring awareness to Brainstrust.

    We want to show our on-going support to Brainstrust and Geoff as he continues to run marathons and raise funds to help those diagnosed with brain tumours. We caught up with Geoff to see his progress for 2021, here is the latest update:

    Training so far this year has been focused on longer distance events: Thames Path 100km from Central London to Henley, Race to the King (Arundel to Winchester) 88km and a few others, obviously you can’t just jump in a decide to run 12-14 hours (well, I can’t), so, with a bit of help, I have been following a steady training program that adds more distance each month. Over Easter I ran my first marathon of the year at Dorney Lakes; all under strict COVID-19 rules) taking 25 minutes of my previous best time. Training for events like Thames Path and others requires hill training and trail running not just road running.  I am now regularly running half marathons back-to-back over a weekend – All to raise money for Brainstrust.” – Geoff Worsley
